4.2/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web
More than a simple chocolate shop, ChocoMuseo aims to explain the chocolate-making process through exhibits and workshops. Visitors can take a free tour of the exhibits, but the real treat lies in making and tasting your own creations through one of the workshops. Every lesson sends you home with a generous portion of chocolates handmade by you, but if you're pressed for time, you can explore the menu of delicious pre-made treats. Plan to see ChocoMuseo and other attractions that appeal to you using our Cusco family vacation planner.

  • We visited the museum whist acclimatising in Cusco before the inca trail. Free to look around and a good explanation from the staff. Tasted the chocolates and chocolate liqueurs. 
  • I had some time alone in Lima before heading to Cusco and my love for chocolate found me at this place. I did the workshop and it was super fun and very informative. Learning about cocao production an...  read more »
  • Nice place to visit for 20 minutes during your city walk. History and process of making chocolate are displayed. They offer also workshops (which we didn't take). 
  • We read about the "bean to bar" class and were pretty much hooked as soon as we read about it. The class was offered 3 times per day and takes 2+ hours. Included in said class was an overview of where the beans come from, the process of fermentation that makes them legit and then an actual class during which you make the chocolate we all love! During the class, you roast, peel, crush, grind and taste chocolate throughout the process of it becoming some dreamy Valentine's Day delight! We learned that roasted beans give off banana, coffee and olive notes - cool party knowledge, check! After finishing the process of prepping the beans, you try three different drinks - chocolate tea, Mayan hot chocolate and Peruvian hot chocolate (not sure if that's the real name, but that's what we called it). Following the drinks, you get to pour your own chocolates and mix them with any fixins you like! After pouring they take an hour to set so don't make the mistake we did of having to leave right after the class. They were super accommodating however and rushed our ( in a freezer we think). A really fun and unique way to spend a few hours in Cusco. Well worth the $25 per person!
  • So much fun! Free chocolate samples and great desserts to order at the end of your free tour. A few streets off Plaza de Armas.
  • Again like the pisco "museum" it's not really a museum but you can learn a lot about how chocolate is made and get some nice samples. The cafe is also pretty good - try the fondue!
  • I visited and learned A LOT about chocolate during my trip to Cusco. It was so much fun making the chocolate, but even more fun eating the finished product. The teacher was very informative and had a great sense of humor. Recommended if you have time to spare while in Cusco.
  • Fantastic place to spend time in Cusco! It's nice to see the effort done by the museum to educate visitors of this thriving industry. Didn't get to try it myself, but you can sign up for a chocolate making class. And don't forget to sample all the liqueurs on offer
